  • No longer a referendum on Obama

    A truism of American presidential politics is that elections involving an incumbent standing for reelection are driven almost entirely by voters' analyses of the performance of that president.

  • Obamacare (Romneycare) off the table

    Poor Rick Santorum could only shrug in frustration when he complained in the Florida debate about the supreme irony of the 2012 presidential race: Republicans made President Obama vulnerable two years ago by demonizing his health-insurance reforms and now they are about to nominate one of two men who cannot effectively use the issue against him.

Re: “The sound and the fury

Surely somebody knows him. From the looks of his chest and arms he probably goes to a gym somewhere. And undoubtedly runs his mouth there too.

Re: “Griffen blocks use of execution drug, throws schedule into doubt. State objects to his hearing case

Quite frankly, while it may well be that the ADC lied to McKesson about the intended use of the drugs in question, I'm not sure that their legal theories will ultimately hold up. But boy this sure is unseemly.

Adding to it is Judge Griffen's hearing the application for the injunction. He may be 200% correct on the law, but he is biased. He should have recused. As PJ said, he has the same 1st Amendment rights as I do. That's not the question. His passion and "soul" are not the questions.

Judges are human. They have their opinions on the issues of the day. However, a judge who has taken a public stance on an issue-any issue-should not preside over a case involving that issue. Which is why most judges steer clear of controversy. They are to avoid the very appearance of bias. Otherwise, people lose respect for the rule of law. Which I still believe in.

This is the craziest Holy Saturday ever. And for no good reason.

To hell with Tyler. He got off light. I'm just sorry that his grandparents are still alive to see this.

Re: “Affidavit in Sheridan teen's slaying suggests accused killer stalked victim, attempted suicide

He shot the boy because he was dating a girl that evidently broke up with his son? Good God. I can scarcely wrap my head around that.

Re: “Bill introduced to ban Howard Zinn books from Arkansas public schools

First of all the odds against Howard Zinn being taught in any secondary school are pretty high. Secondly, how the hell did Zinn get on Hendren's radar anyway?

This is just more purblind nonsense from the Laboratory of Democracy.
